Hi, as requested in the intro section, here are some pics of my layout. Its in a 10x8 shed and is based on the Cambrian area in the late 50s/early60s. These aren't new pics, will post some more up to date ones soon.


I painted a basecoat on the green areas that wasn't quite the right shade of green!
Have since started putting scatter etc... on top so looks better now!


A view of the goods shed/lamp huts etc....


Ex GWR Manor 7829 Ramsbury manor with the Cambrian Coast Express - I will eventually rename this as a manor that was actually on the Cambrian.....

Pete

Yeah sure....


An Ivatt stops at the station. In reality these were only ever used on the cambrian briefly to see whether they'd be any good to use on the line....But I decided I could use my 'modellers license'!

Your layout looks great. A collet goods - nice loco. Is the trestle bridge based on the one across the R. Dovey?

Hi again Tom,
The trestle bridge is just a typical structure of the dozens used on the Cambrian lines. I supose Barmouth being the most well known.

I used the bridge at Caersws as a basis for the model. Simply because that is the nearest to my home location!
